First Source Federal Credit Union is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s Statewide College Scholarship Program and giving away scholarships to college-bound high school seniors!
Last year, this program awarded $30,000 in scholarships to 48 students across New York with scholarships ranging from $250 to $1,750. As a part of this program, First Source Federal Credit Union will also be giving out an additional scholarship worth $2,500. Applicants must be a graduating senior in Herkimer or Oneida County who applies and fits the following criteria.

To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending two or four-year accredited educational institutions for the first time in the fall of 2021. They must also be Members of First Source or another participating New York Credit Union. Students/applicants will be competing against other credit union members from across the state. Applicants will be judged based upon their academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities and the quality of their written essay.

“This is a great opportunity,” said Pamela Way, First Source Community Relations Specialist. “Graduating high school seniors could be eligible for up to $4,250 in scholarships through this state program. We are excited for the potential student and to be a part of the program this year.”
